Manchester United title winners 2012-13

The Premier League is fast approaching its 30th anniversary – which amounts to a lot of football being played over the past three decades.

There have been six ever-presents (Arsenal, Chelsea, Everton, Liverpool, Manchester United and Tottenham) while some teams have only spent one season in the sun.

But who tops the all-time Premier League table? Despite their relative struggles over recent years, it’s no surprise to see United well clear ahead of everybody else – winning 13 league titles will generally set you ahead of your rivals.

Arsenal were second for many years but have found themselves overtaken by Chelsea, who’ve gradually drawn their London rivals in since Roman Abramovich took over in 2003.

Manchester City are zooming up the standings too, despite playing in the Football League for five seasons during the late 90s and early 2000s.

The highest team currently not playing in the Premier League are 1995 title winners Blackburn Rovers, who are currently 12th in the all-time standings, above the likes of Leeds United and Leicester City.
